Losing weight can be an immense personal accomplishment, but it doesn’t always deliver the expected end results. If you’re unhappy with excess skin or stubborn fat deposits after losing weight, then it may be time to contact your plastic surgeon. Consider these helpful body procedures for the recently slimmed-down to learn more about your options.
Liposuction is a very common procedure for individuals who have lost weight with diet and exercise but are still struggling with localized fat deposits. Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction is a minimally-invasive plastic surgery procedure designed to reshape specific areas of the body that are unresponsive to traditional weight loss measures. By removing excess fat deposits using a thin, hollow cannula, liposuction works to improve uneven body contours for a more proportional figure.
Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight often suffer from excess or sagging skin along their midsection. Fortunately, a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, can be performed to remove excess fat and skin for a firmer, smoother abdominal profile. In most cases, a tummy tuck can also help to restore separated or weakened abdominal muscles for optimal results.
Women who have lost weight with diet, exercise, or following pregnancy often lose volume in their breasts. Also known as an augmentation mammoplasty, a breast augmentation using silicone or saline breast implants can help women restore their breast volume and increase the size of their breasts for a more desirable bust-line.
